  1. Invite users ignoring white list

    We are using mattermost at our university and have a whitelist set-up so only people from our university can join. However some teams have indicated they want to cooperate with others who are not officially affiliated with our university and thus have no university e-mail address.

    We would like an option for sysadmins to invite these users to the server.

  2. add anchors to /help/* docs

    Many "normal" users have problems writing markdown when chatting.
    For example, my friend don't know how to add "In-line Images".
    So, I want to send him a link to "In-line Images" section at https://chat.ohze.net/help/formatting
    But I can't because "In-line Images" is not an anchor like, ex https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#stage-1-pm-review (auto added by github for headings in a markdown document)

  3. Disable notifications functionality for defined period of time

    As a user I want to deactivate Mattermost notifications in my windows desktop application for a defined period of time. After this period the notifications will be shown as before.
    I can predefine in the period in the setings.
    I would like to activate this function by right clicking on the system tray icon and choose the action.

  4. I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS.

    I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS. Also on iPhone, I see all unread messages at top of list, on macOS I have to scan the whole list to find unread messages. So the macOS client needs to catch up with the iPhone.

  5. Private message with authorized members only

    Hi, (I am new to this forum but I have installed Mattermost in my organization)

    Is it possible to add a new choice in the administrative console in the option “Allow users to open private message channels with” to request permission to create private messages with members who use the platform.

    Currently, the configuration choices are:

    All members of the team
    Any user on the Mattermost server
    and I would like to add :

    Only authorized members
    To prevent all members from communicating privately without prior notice

    Is it a good idea ?

  6. Delete an user's private conversations

    In some cases we need to delete all private conversations from an old user but without deleting the user (so it doesn't break continuity in public conversations).
    We use an SQL query:
    SELECT DISTINCT Name FROM Channels INNER JOIN
    (SELECT Id FROM Users WHERE Username LIKE 'Foo')
    sub ON Name LIKE concat('%', sub.Id, '%');
    Then "platform channel delete" to delete the channels.

    But it would be much easier to have a CLI command that does this.

  7. Add a Message of the Day feature for each channel

    We have several teams at work and each channel in the team has a specific purpose. It would be ideal if we could set a time at which a recurring message of the day would be posted. We would include links to resources for the team as well as recent news for people who have been out of the office and are returning.

    It would be like an extension to the header and purpose sections. Ideally tagging people would work such that some of the messages can act as daily reminders to everyone of the schedule.

  8. Include channel creation and management restrictions in team edition

    I know these features were left out of Team Edition to keep it simple, but these options are present in the config.json file.

    Enabling this features from just the config.json file would keep the team edition ui simple, but give smaller teams the same ability to control the whims of their users

  9. 100% Slack Compatible Webhooks

    I would like Mattermost to be able to consume any Slack-compatible webhook. It is very frustrating that I have to build a tool to proxy webhooks from GitHub for example.

  10. At present we can render tables, can we have the control to left/right align the tables

    At present we can render tables, can we have the control to left/right align the tables.
    Use case : For me my data is some what large, which can't fit in a screen. If we have the option to right align some tables, i can manage the space.

  11. Delete user avatar from CLI

    We need a way to delete an user avatar with the CLI tool.
    Currently we delete the in data/users/ manually but it would be easier if we could do it by using the email instead of the ID.

  13. Add a config show cli command

    For troubleshooting purposes it would be handy to have a platform config show command that lists the effective configuration values. Thus, overriding environment variables must be considered. At least from the wording of platform config validate ('The document is valid'), it seems that environment variables aren't considered.

    There could be filters to mangle the output, but grep is fine, imo.

  16. allow users to 'follow' others to create a filtered feed view.

    Currently we have an in-built equality of posts which can become inefficient with high volume.

    Recognizing the importance of hubs in scale-free network growth, we could allow for a filtered view of the main town-hall feed, where you just saw the posts (and related threads) of those you choose to follow.

    One could also toggle back to the unfiltered view, but allowing people to cluster could make high volume teams more manageable.

    Unlike Facebook, the user would remain in control - with no algorithm and the ability to toggle back to the unfiltered view.

  17. Show all threads in one place

    Option to show all threads in which a user participates in one place. Ask from Startup School.

    Note: By default mention notifications for threads aren't turned on, maybe we should default them to on to see to what extent this helps.

  18. Add emoji management via API

    It would be nice to be able to add / remove custom emojis via API. Then it would be very simple to propose complete packs of custom emojis and apply them.

  19. Allow to create a private Slash commands (only available for one user)

    It could be interesting to add per user slash command.
    For example, I use an RSS integration which allow me to manage my RSS feeds from Mattermost with Slash commands. I would like to set this command as private, to avoid other user to manage my feeds.
